A: You are missing a decoder for RealAudio COOK. You can install that by following these steps:

Download the Windows version of binary codec pack for MPlayer.

Extract only these files from the ZIP archive:
cook.dll, pncrt.dll, sipr3260.dll, drv33260.dll, drv43260.dll
Put those files in the Windows system folder.
That is C:\Windows\System32\ on a 32-bit version of Windows.
That is C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ on a 64-bit version of Windows.
